An Opportunity to See One of Dalmatia’s Rarest Games: Zoga Falo with Wine

Bogdanuša Evening is a celebration of Hvar culture and also its best known indigenous white grape variety. Translated, it means ‘a gift from God’ and it only grows on Hvar. It was a star performer at a Croatian wine tasting in Oslo recently, and you will have the chance to sample the Carić Bogdanuša which won the silver medal in Bulgaria last month. But that’s not all…

The traditional game of zoga falo has all but died out in Dalmatia, and the village of Svirče is one of the few places where it is still played. As part of the celebrations, there will be a game of zoga falo at the beginning of the evening. An exhibition of famous people from Svirče, as well as the excellent male klapa Veli Kamik, and it has all the hallmarks of a great evening. Check out Hvar TV’s report on last year’s event – including a game and explanation of zoga falo – and see you in Svirče!
